Still within Gamla Stan, Stortorget is the oldest square in Stockholm, and became a popular meeting place in the Middle Ages. Admire the seventeenth- and eighteen-century buildings, with their gabled roofs, or people-watch from one of the cafes that spill out onto the square. Behind today’s cafes and restaurants lies a darker past to the square – this was the site of the Stockholm Bloodbath in 1520, when the Swedish Regent was defeated by the Danish King Christian II, who later rounded up and beheaded over 80 noblemen and burghers, grotesquely piling their severed heads into a warning display.
